Turkish 15th Century Kit
Size: 5" x 3¾"
Complete kit for the experienced needleworker to produce a 1/12th scale miniature version in needlepoint of an authentic oriental carpet. The kit contains a pattern chart with information about the origins of the carpet, fully illustrated instructions, 22-holes-to-the-inch bound canvas, Appleton's crewel wool, perle cotton for the fringe and a tapestry needle.
The design of this miniature carpet has been reconstructed from two fragments found in archaeological excavations of a rubbish-dump at Fustat, outside Cairo in Egypt. The main pattern of squares comes from one fragment, while the other fragment shows the border motif.
